Alfa Laval ALT SB 15 Yeast Agitator Tests | Alfa Laval

Repumping VS agitation

Our agitator homogenizes the tank (100 hl) within 60-120 sec with a 2.2 kW motor whilst a re-pumping loop with an 11kW motor circulates with a flow at 700 hl/h. This test clearly shows how little effect a re-pumping loop has on tank mixing. We can conclude that our agitator is more effective in tank mixing than the re-pumping loop.
